Neurodivergence is expansive and resists definition. Whether you have been formally diagnosis, are seeking or resisting diagnoses, are questioning, self-diagnosed, community diagnosed, or seeking to unlearn neurotypicality, you can rest assured knowing that the support you receive is firmly rooted in de-pathologizing, neurodivergent-affirming, disability-affirming care drawn from decades of disability justice, autistic liberation, psychiatric survivor, mad, and critical neurodiversity movements and struggles.

Learning and Communication Disabilities are commonly perceived to be markers of intellectual weakness. That’s simply not the case! In fact, in order to meet the diagnostic criteria for a learning disability you must be of average or above average intelligence.*

Having a learning disability means that you process or express information in unique, diverse, non-traditional ways. These diverse ways of processing information are actually unique and innovative approaches to thinking and problem solving, but do not get a chance to develop in traditional educational and workplace settings. By honouring your struggles as strengths and bringing your strengths to the struggles, we can develop strategies to regain your unique balance and rhythm to realize your potential.

* Intelligence here is measured according to IQ texts, which have been critiqued for measuring culturally-specific knowledge rather than problem-solving abilities, and as such, tend to de-value intelligences and knowledges that are unrecognized and under-valued.
